The Mellow Fig | Blackrock, Co. Dublin

Hi guys! Happy Hump Day πŸ™‚ As promised, I’m trying to share as many cafe posts as I can over the next month in the hope that you’ll get out and explore some of these before the summer is out. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll probably have already guessed that I’m obsessed with…

Afternoon Tea | The Malton Killarney, Co Kerry.

Guys another long weekend is in sights (nearly!) If you’re planning on doing something a little different for the long weekend, you might be considering a little Afternoon Tea session so I thought it would be a good idea to share my experience of tea at The Malton in Killarney today with you. If you…

Dolce Sicily | Dawson St, Dublin

Saturday evening already! Doesn’t it go so fast? I’ve actually had a really nice day today and managed to squeeze a lot in which makes me happy. I’d love to be one of these people who can stay home relaxing all day but I just go ape with cabin fever, leading everyone to suddenly hate…

Salt | Victoria Road, Cork.

Finishing a week of annual leave is one of the worst things about being an adult. Definitely. With the thought of going back to work tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to share an experience of a new cafe on Where Is My Teaspoon to look back Β on happier times with a…

The Creel | Westport, Co Mayo

We haven’t had a cafe post on Where Is My Teaspoon in a little while so I thought I’d kick off this week with my visit to The Creel in Westport over the weekend. It’s big and pink with wallpaper and a cake counter. Think oil table cloths, sugar cubes and clipboards as menus. It’s…

Bloom Festival – June Bank Holiday

Remember when I said I was going to Bloom a couple of weeks ago? I’m finally getting a chance to clear the photos off my camera and chat about how it went. To be honest, I really went for the food element as it is run by Bord Bia but have to say I was…

Update

News, news. Let me think of some news. Well we didn’t find my bicycle for starters. Or rather, we did find it but didn’t get it back. I went down to that Garda station all Nancy Drew’d up with CCTV, dates, times and where I believed Elyse (my bike) was and all they could tell…

Connemara, Co. Galway

Oh Where Is My Teaspoon – how I’ve missed you! I don’t know about you guys but I am having such a bad week. I’ve just come back off my holidays to Connemara and am playing catch up at work which doesn’t feel like it’s going well, and on top of that my Cambridge bicycle…

Perfect Picnics

Oh god do I love a picnic! Ah you know I do. What could be better than packing up a wicker basket, filling up a flask of tea and grabbing a stripey blanket and heading out the door? If you need inspiration planning a picnic, check out my top tips here! While I have a…

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Our long weekend away in Lahinch has finally arrived πŸ™‚ We are so excited and I need to get packing and get the apartment tidied up a little bit before we go but I wanted to share a look at a Carrot Cake I made during the week. A lady I work…

Shortcrust Pastry Recipe.

Fruit pies are something I think most people my age associate with their mothers. Nearly every 90s baby I know, remembers being offered a sugary piece of cooking apple from their mother’s baking bowl, and to this day resisting eating a piece from my own baking bowl is a challenge for me! A standard Shortcrust…
